Guest post: Serie A left back of the season

Some players can go an entire season unnoticed, but they put their fair share of effort and work rate in. The results are positive and they develop both on and off the field. These silent partners in football’s team game will rarely win a game for your side, but they will certainly never lose a game for your team.

It can be difficult to understand the importance and qualities required of a good full back.

    Kone keen on Palace switch

    Agen Bola reported, Wigan forward Arouna Kone says he does
    not intend to play in the Championship and that a move to Crystal Palace would
    interest him.

    Kone, 29, was Wigan’s star man last season
    despite their relegation from the Premier Leagu, as he scored 13 goals in 38
    appearances in all competitions.

    The Ivory Coast international helped Wigan to
    their FA Cup success, but is not keen on hanging
    around at the DW Stadium to experience life in the second tier.

    With Wigan’s former manager Roberto Martinez
    having left for Everton, Kone has been linked with a switch to Goodison Park,
    but the Ivorian also said he was keen on a move to newly-promoted Crystal

    Kone, who says he has been the subject of
    several enquiries, wants the offer to be right for Wigan, though.

    Kone told The Sun: “You always have
    ambitions as a footballer, and I don’t intend to play in the English second
    division.asreported byIndo Eleven.

    “Wigan have gone down, which is a real shame.
    It’s up to them to set out their stance about my situation. I aim to play for
    one of the best clubs in England, and I hope I will get the chance.

    “I’ve had plenty of approaches. I can’t reveal
    the names of the clubs.

    “But Crystal Palace have gone up, and from
    the moment a club is in the Premier League that is good for me.
